1) M.C.A project  
The maharashtra cricket association is developing a new 55,000 seat stadium in Pune near Mumbai.

This is a signature project, of the Maharashtra Cricket association, Our role involves designing connections of the South Stand designed especially for the Media, the dignitaries and the V.I.P’s. It involves designing a variety of complex connections, the stand has been designed by us with the help of pratibha steel and structurals. We are also accountable for the erection methodology and quality control on the site.

Taking into account the local climate, the practice will use innovative solutions for the roofs to the stands both to maximize shading and provide a memorable and identifiable signature for the complex.
Connection Design
1. Podium Level 2 to 6 –
This is large podium area of size 45m x 34m and having total 5 levels. Total area covered = 7650 sq. m. The height of the area is 40 m. The total tonnage of structural steel involved in this area is 2200 T. There are huge trusses involved in this are having span of 34 m and with axial force of 12500 kN. Each floor consists of main trusses of 35m span and intermediate trusses of 10 to 12m span.

Connection Design
2. Roof Area -
A tower structure is located on top of roof at a height of 223 m above ground level. The sole purpose of this is to increase architectural appearance of building. This structure has 8 levels. The size of structure is 40m x 65m with total area covered = 2925 sq. m. The height of structure is 27 m. The total tonnage of structural steel involved in this area is 450 T. In this structure, connections need to design considering dynamic effect due wind. We had prepared about 150 connections for this area.

3.Landscape and Pool Deck Area -
This area is located near podium level 6 i.e. 40m above ground level. The structure covers on one level only. The total area covered is 4350 sq. m. This area is supporting ball room. Some trusses are supported by taking cantilever from main trusses by using Friction Grip bolts. The trusses are supported on Pot Bearing to resolve translational forces at support. The total tonnage involved is 1850 T.
Connection Design
This consists of steel towers on top of roof of Office Tower & Residential Tower. The height of steel tower on it is 75.6m and on residential tower is 64.8m. Each tower divided into 3 modules. Each module is inserted into supporting module. All connections are design as per BS Code. All sufficient care is taken to satisfy fatigue requirement as per BS-7608.
Burj Dubai Lake Hotel and Serviced Apartments is a super tall skyscraper set to rise 306 meters alongside the Dubai Mall. The mixed used tower will contain a total of 63 floors when it is finished.

Crown (at the top of Burj Dubai Lake Hotel)

The unusual shape of crown is unique in itself. In a elevation it looks like a cap in shape where as in plan it looks like a ship. The structure comprises of maintenance platforms, ladders and two 58 meters high spires. Considering the complexity of the structure participants involved in this project decided to detail this crown in 3 sequences; the bottom tail part, main crown and the spires.

The bottom tail part was 68 meters in length; starting point was at 170 meters height from ground level and goes up to 238 meters. 'A' shaped large cantilever area at 3.4 meter height provided for ladders used for maintenance and light zone.

Main crown had four main floors with two maintenance platforms. These platforms connect the crown with spires. Two continuous ladders are running along with the external area of the crown.
5) ORBIT (J.S.W Headquarters, Mumbai)
This project is executed by us in the uptown business area of Bandra Kurla complex popularly known as B.K.C, The project involved designing and developing various connections as regards to the Earthquake and non-earthquake loads. The most challenging part of this assignment was the unique architecture of this structure. The connection design involved using different philosophies and varied techniques. Moment and Shear connections were a part of this project. This project was done in partnership with Tech Flow Engineers a detailing firm. The total tonnage of the project was = 4000 MT and the building being a 9 + 1 storied structure.
Rebar Detailing
Rebar Detailing
Detailing steel requires much more than just an understanding of civil and structural engineering. It must be done by someone who understands how steel is fabricated, transported and erected. It must be done by someone who understands how to detail steel rather than someone who merely can use a detailing software application. Our personnel are all specialist in their skill sets and highly qualified and experienced within the field of rebar

We use the results of your planning consisting of, concrete forming drawings and the design calculations (static calculations) as basis for our reinforcement planning. For the execution of our reinforcement drawings we consider various codes of practice and the
Rebar Detailing
requirements of CNC machines. Beyond that we consider the special interests of the construction site in arrangement with your project - management.

By constantly delivering accurate drawings of the highest quality, we are able to easily meet tight deadlines. We maximize shared working hours through operating a shift system. Our clients enjoy a secure and confidential working area on our servers which can be accessed remotely for administering their projects. The result of our work will be in one of the following data formats in your user account on the Axis-Server:

AutoCAD Drawings
PDF Files
Bar List in MS Excel Format
We optimize the drawing file for your favored CAD system. So you can use our finished drawings without rework.
